It's free to visit this organic, working farm on the edge of Paignton.

Open to the public 7 days a week, it includes a Farm Shop and Cafe serving local produce and a wonderful kitchen garden with a wartime allotment and air raid shelter. You can see farm animals including cows, sheep, goats, chickens, pigs and alpacas, and walk a lovely 2km nature trail with a bird hide.

The farm is run by local charity Torbay Coast and Countryside Trust with all profits going to support its conservation and education work.

The Trust run an events programme at Occombe and it's other sites, so please check the website for details of what's going on before you arrive. Free parking!

It’s a cool early morning in April. Dew is rising from the tall grass as sunbeams break through the stems. The wood is beginning to fill with birdsong. In the distance, a lamb bleats and the cattle stir. I tread softly past the shoulder-high stems, a feeling anticipation in my gut. Suddenly I freeze. I am being watched. Beyond the... More

Went in for a quick cuppa but the service was slow and rather disorganised. Grand daughter enjoyed seeing cows.

Been here on several occasions and been satisfied with the meals. Friendly staff, reasonable selection of local food with just a hint of "Joes caf" The farm shop below offers a good selection of local produce very well presented but with many farm shops the prices are on the high side.

fab place to either pop in for breakfast or lunch or spend the day doing activities and going for a walk. A little expensive, but then it's top quality and well run. A great place for families or individuals with lots of events throughout the year.

We had to call in to purchase our passes for the Berry Head quarry for fishing so never had the chance to fully sample what was on offer but what we did experience was friendly helpful staff and the home cooked food in the café was outstandingly good and at a reasonable price. Well worth a visit for that alone.... More

We had a lovely visit to Occombe Farm but left it a little late so will have to go earlier in the day next time. We had a lovely lunch and sat outside. Its a great place to visit with the kids and they have plenty play area, etc.

Very great food in the restaurant. Nice if a bit pricey farm shop & butcher. Animals for the kids to look at / play with. Woodland walks, and plenty of functions on through the year to keep you occupied.
